Paleo dieting? Finding the subtle nuances of a balanced diet that fits us as individuals instead of gorging on buzz words and trends that generalize the word 'diet' for everyone is wise.  But - finding the right way to balance all of this is the key!

Paleo Shmaleo - what is it all about?

By Leanne Ely

If you have any interest in food and health at all (which you obviously do or you wouldn't have found yourself here reading this article), then you've been hearing the word "Paleo" being tossed around a lot.

You may even associate the term with an extreme way of eating, much like the low-carb Atkins diet. A fad that will disappear like so many trendy diets that have come before it.

But, at the risk of sounding like a cliche, 'going Paleo' really means adapting a new lifestyle for the rest of your life. Once you go Paleo, you'll physically feel so amazing that it will be very hard to go back to the way you used to eat. 

Let me explain.

First of all, the word Paleo is from the word paleolithic. If you want the science behind this way of eating, you can spend some time on Google, but I'll share the general concept with you here. 

A Paleo lifestyle means eating the way our ancestors would have. The premise behind this diet is that our bodies haven't adapted to eating modern-day foods (those that weren't available 10,000 years ago). The theory is that digestive disorders and diseases that are so prevalent today are running rampant because our bodies don't know what to do with the foods we're putting in our mouths.
